We are proud to announce that the following California Community Colleges and California State University campuses have been honored as 2021 Champions of Higher Education and Equity Champions for Excellence in Transfer on November 16th during our annual Champions of Higher Education for Excellence in Transfer awards ceremony. These colleges and universities are leading the state in conferring the Associate Degree for Transfer (ADT), enrolling ADT earners on guaranteed pathways to a bachelor’s degree, and intentionally working to support Latinx and Black students on their path to a degree. Learn how we selected the 2021 Champions.

We celebrated these campus leaders and heard from students, policymakers, and our awardees about the importance of continuing to strengthen and scale the Associate Degree for Transfer via faithful implementation of landmark legislation, AB 928 (Berman).
